'Italy facing its OWN Catalonia: Referendums in Lombardy and Venice could TOPPLE EU'

ITALY could face its own Catalonia-style break-up with controversial referendums scheduled for both Lombardy and Venice.

Joey Millar - Sunday Express (UK) - October 5, 2017

This month the Lombardy region and the city of Venice will both vote on new powers of autonomy at referendums which are now taking on increasing levels of controversy.

Previously seen as a low-scale vote on local powers, the referendums are now experiencing symbolic overtones following last Sunday’s Catalonian chaos.

Last weekend more than 800 people were injured by police as a referendum on independence for Catalonia was held - against the express wishes of leaders in Madrid and Brussels.

And now Italy is facing similar chaos with two referendums set to be held on October 22, although in these instances the votes are state-approved and will not face violent opposition.
